It’s been a painful couple of days. Whatever I pulled, dislocated or otherwise injured in my back has been driving me crazy. I have lost two days of work. Been on some damn good pain medicine and had plenty of sleep. I also have been on muscle relaxers. This is why I save leftover medicine, it might be expired but it still works for me. Beats having to run to the doctor or hospital.
I have been sitting on the heating pad and that has helped. Last night I took an Epsom Salt Bath. First time in the bathtub in a long time. I quickly remembered why I don’t get in, the tub is too small for me. I mean I fit but my legs have to be propped up. It’s not a sideways thing but a length thing. Expansion on both parts for the tub would be nice but honestly I don’t use the bathtub, I am a shower person.
Got a wake up call and it was the eye doctor, they called this afternoon while I was napping with Gator. My frames were in. That’s when I decided it was time to get moving. So I got up, showered, got dressed and went to check on the frames. Liked them, got measured and ordered them. Paid for them as well, that was $250. I wish I was getting what I truly wanted but since I don’t have any information I have to settle. There will be plenty of Blue and a little bit of silver. I’d like some black thrown in but that wasn’t an option. They are Ray Ban’s and I am anxious to get them on my face for good. They will have Eyezen Protection which is suppose to be better for looking at a computer all day long.
As for work, I am going back tomorrow. Some of my fuck ups emerged yesterday and my boss had to work with one of them. I got another one today. It’s all simple stuff but it shows that I am under pressure and that is why I make mistakes. I am detail oriented and careful but sometimes things slip your mind
I was able to fix a cardkey from home, so that felt good. Got a door reader problem and I sent an email but never heard back. Got a new person starting at a location I haven’t worked with before and I have to work with that buildings management to get her a card. Working with building management goes two ways – it’s good from the start or it’s shit. In this case these are both shit, so I have to work them harder to get what I want, which is not any fun for me.
As for my back it’s feeling a little bit better but it still hurts. If were at the weekend and there is not much more relief then I will be visiting an emergency room, not what I want to do but I have to listen to my body. I think I only did minor damage but this is a area of the back where I have already got problems, it’s not something I will fiddle with. I mean a few days of pain is fine, the intense stuff seems to be over with. I think the more sedentary that I get the worse it’s going to get. So I have to move around.
Now enter the barfing cat. Ruth isn’t feeling well and she has thrown up all over the basement. Made me wish I had my spot bot. Turns out I still have it, but the hose is damaged. I went looking for a new machine then it hit me, just buy a replacement hose. I did just that and it will be here on Friday. $15 that is far better than shelling out $100. Oh Mr. Spot Bot I have missed you so. Looking forward to being reunited. I just fill it full of cleaning solutions and water, place it over the stain, plug in the machine and press a button. It does the rest of the job for me. Viola, bye bye stain. Beats lugging out the big machine for a small job.
Kind of looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and of course the day I am going back will be my first day of a very long on-call shift. Starts tomorrow and goes through the 18th. I can handle it but I would rather not.
After the eye doctor, I went to Red Lobster. It was good even if I didn’t have a drink. Just ate a regular meal. Made it back home, I was going to stop and get the mail but my body said enough for one day go home. I listened. This is the most time I have spent in front of a computer since Sunday.
Breaks, relaxing, sleeping and doing most anything else is something that I need to introduce into my routine more often. it really helps. I also got a message at work from my co-worker who left. She wants to know how things are going. Yeah haven’t quite decided if I am going to respond and if I do respond what to say. It will all come together. Tomorrow is also my bosses last day in the office for 2 weeks, kind of looking forward to peace and quiet. A lot less meetings and getting more stuff done with less interruptions.
Fun. Now to enjoy what I have left of an evening. Tosh.O is back on so that will be nice way to cap off the day. Hope all is going well for you.
